His experience ranges throughout project development, delivery and operations and includes tolled managed lanes corridors, highway expansion projects and large bridge programs. He graduated from the University of Texas Austin with a Master of Science in Civil Engineering and is a licensed professional engineer in Texas. 

Kyle Young, PE joins RS&H as Innovative Program Advisory Senior Program Management Engineer to support current and future alternative delivery advisory services across the United States. He is a seasoned project manager with vast experience working on large alternative delivery programs and projects including private-public-partnerships (P3) on behalf of public and private owners. Young has worked on a variety of projects ranging from vertical construction in urban settings to congested roadways and throughout the full project lifecycle from development through operations. Young graduated from Rutgers University with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering and earned a Master of Business Administration from the University of Maryland, College Park.
